Famed scholar and academic Spongebob Squarepants once declared the best part of secrets is “secretly telling someone your secret, thereby secretly adding another secret to their secret collection of secrets, secretly.” While The Spectrumis not a secret, fans and supporters of secret culture will not-so secretly hope these secrets are never seen.
